So during the spring of 2012 I contacted Woodchuck, my fellow IRA Consortium member and master wooden props craftsmen to come up with a grip for my lightsaber.
We are all aware of his amazing work, especially his blasters.
I wanted his beautiful work to grace this hilt.
First we needed to get a piece of wood for him to work with that had the interior of the piece already hollowed out to fit the lightsaber. Enter parfaitlumiere of France. He found a wonderful piece to use for this project, and we had it sent to Woodchuck who then went to work.
I basically gave Woodchuck free reign to create whatever he wanted.
Imagining that perhaps this was made from various versions of Blylark wood or some other type found on Endor or Kashyyk.... the lightsaber master who wielded this hit might have crafted it on one of these planets.
And off to Woodchuck went to create this.
All that I can say is WOW!!!
It is such a cool design.... and it feels very comfortable to your hands.
So in summary... i can't say enough how awesome this is... A quick thanks to parfaitlumiere for the wooden piece... and of course to Woodchuck for such an AMAZING PIECE OF ART!!!

ZahcStarKiller: Yeah I have to agree. I just happened to stumble across spot #1 on the orbital machining Obi TPM run and had the opportunity to purchase it. That is pretty darn close to happiness.
